BELLOWS FALLS — Tom Pirozzoli’s recordings have had national and international success, and he’s in the Smithsonian Folkways Collection. He’s been on the Top 40 AAA charts, and had a featured release at Tower Records in Los Angeles and Nashville. He’s worked with artists like Greg Brown, Jesse Winchester, Doc Watson, and Willy Porter.

Sophisticated guitar playing forms a rich backdrop for his warm tenor, with melodies and lyrics exploring a wide range of the human and global experience. His encounters with people, cultures, and ideas while traveling Europe, South America, India, Southeast Asia, China, and Tibet continue to enrich and deepen his music. His relaxed stage presence features endearing, funny, insightful patter.

“Good sound, man!” – Taj Mahal

“You can’t write like he does without leaning into each line.” – Willy Porter

“Hypnotic soothing vocals and rich guitar textures… well crafted.” – Sing Out

“Pirozzoli’s poetic lyrics make his songs worth reading as well as hearing.” – Boston Sunday Globe

Pirozzoli kept a 200-gigs-a-year schedule for decades, but these days only performs a couple dozen times annually as he focuses on his successful fine art career. Stage 33 Live is fortunate to host him.

Singer-songwriter Corey Wrinn from Rockport, MA, will open in his first appearance at Stage 33 Live. A musician, painter, natural resource conservationist, and tall ship crew member, he has performed as a soloist and in groups throughout New England. Corey Wrinn was unable to play this date due to bad traveling conditions.

The COVID-19 protocol will be the guidelines in effect in the community on show day. Currently the guidance is that masks are optional, which may change without notice. Please do not attend if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

Stage 33 Live is pleased to welcome back Tom Pirozzoli on Sunday, December 11 at 6:00 PM, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls VT. Corey Wrinn will open. With Tom’s blessing, this intimate show is just $7 in advance. Tickets will be $10 at the door. Seating is limited. Performances are recorded and filmed.
